I can't believe it's already time for the holidays! We started our leather business this time last year and we've spent almost all our free time in the shop since, thanks to you! We can't thank you enough for all the support while we try to grow Makers South. We've truly enjoyed talking to you all and working on some very cool pieces during our first year in business. So again, thank you!
With the holidays close at hand we wanted to go ahead and do our last big sale of the year so that you can get what you want in time for the gift giving season. Since most of our items are made to order we need to think ahead this year. On top of that, we will be out of the shop for about 10 days fom Nov 20-30 for a family vacation. We will be taking some ordres to finish in the evenings while we wind down but it will still cause delays. That's another reason we are doing our big sale now. We will run this sale through Monday November 21 to give everyone time to take advantage of the deal. Any orders we do not complete before we leave will be worked on with earnest as soon as we get back!
And while we are talking about delays, I just want to take a moment to remind everyone that, much to my dismay, Makers South is not our full time job. Yet. Erin and I both work regular jobs and sometimes life gets in the way. We've had some major curve balls this year but thankfully, you've all been very understanding. We are rarely late with orders but it can happen. We added a page to the site about wait times that will always have the current estimated wait time and anyt other delays, holiday hours, etc. We haven't figured out the cut off date for getting in time for Christmast yet but we are thinking something like December 9-12 dependin gon order volume. We'll try to get as many of you in as we can though! The link to the always up to date wait times page is: http://makerssouth.com/wait-times/
So lets get on with the sale! We've added a few new products to the store in time for the sale and we'll try to add a few more before it ends. The sale is for 20% off all items bought through the store. We will extend the coupon to custom orders based on items in the store as well. For example, if you want one of our Traveler's Notebook covers and want to add pockets or a pen loop, we'll still give you the 20% off, just use the custom order page on the site. To make sure we get as much as we can done during this sale the 20% off does *NOT* apply to completely custom orders.
As always, feel free to share this with friends and if you've already bought from us, please consider stopping by the site and leaving a review! This helps us more than you know so if you have a minute or two to leave your thoughts (good or bad!) we'd really appreciate it.
